Spin-1 particles in successive Stern-Gerlach experiments

Spin-1 particles in successive Stern-Gerlach experiments

The Spin-1 particles in successive Stern-Gerlach experiments simulation aims to help students make connections between the vector representation of quantum states for a spin-1 particle and the physical measurement outcomes. The simulation allows students to choose up to two successive Stern-Gerlach apparatuses (SGAs), and change the orientation of the second SGA. The simulation shows the quantum states, the matrix representations of the spin components corresponding to the SGA measurements and the measurement outcome probabilities. An accompanying activity for this simulation is available at http://quantumphysics.iop.org and at www.st-andrews.ac.uk/physics/quvis. The simulation can be downloaded from the QuVis website www.st-andrews.ac.uk/physics/quvis. This simulation is part of the UK... Show More
